    Answer : 7 x + y - 29 = 0

    ==============================

    Equation of the given line :  x - 7 y - 9  =  0

    This line passes through Points A(2, -1)  and  B (9, 0)

    It's Slope (m)  = (1/7). 

    And equation of the line passing through any point say P  (5, -6)  and perpendicular to the given line will have slope = - 7.

    => y - (-6)  =  (-7) ( x - 5 )

    =>  y  =  - 7 x + 29

    => 7 x + y - 29  =  0 ................................ Answer ======>> Required Line
